At its core, Hogwarts Legacy is a role-playing game that sees players take on the character of a fifth-year transfer student. This means that players will be acquiring new skills, gear, and other items to aid them along their journey in the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. While players will be able to upgrade all of these character aspects as they progress through the game, players are curious about exactly when they can upgrade certain elements. More specifically, players are wondering when they can increase their inventory slots in Hogwarts Legacy.

At the start of the game, players are given access to 20 different inventory slots. Though this is fine for the early game, as soon as players begin to explore the open world, they will quickly realize that 20 slots is not enough. Players will constantly be finding new gear that can change the appearance of their character.

However, with such a limited inventory, players might have to make tough choices when it comes to their gear.

As far as we know, there is only one known method of increasing your inventory slots. That method is completing Merlin Trials, which are open world challenges that were developed by Merlin himself. There are five Merlin Trials in total in Hogwarts Legacy, and players earn four extra inventory slots after they complete one trial. This means players can access 20 extra slots by completing every single Merlin Trial. You can find Merlin Trials all over the map, so you’ll need to explore every region to fully expand your slots.

The trials become available to players after they complete the “The Girl from Uagadou” quest. They are all different challenges, and they range from guiding moths to light, moving rocks, and lighting torches. As soon as you complete one trial, you will see your inventory expand.
